Ken Hensley in South Africa

From RockFest

By now, you’ve probably heard that KEN HENSLEY, the man who penned so many of Uriah Heep’s classic tracks, will be doing a once-off-gig at the New Life Church auditorium in Douglasdale, Johannesburg, on Saturday 17 March! In a major scoop for The Rockfest on MIX 93.8FM, we are pleased to announce that some excellent SA talent will be supporting this most legendary musician. Toni Rowland, Ghapi / Peter Hanmer BAND, (Cindy) Alter (Stewart) Irving and Nanette Scott, will be setting the stage for a truly memorable day. Booking through Strictly Tickets ( Tickets (R 180.00pp) are limited!!! An item of clothing and / or a tin of canned food for the various charities the church takes care of, together with your prized ticket, gets you in! Doors open at midday. Logistics allowing, The Rockfest on Mix93.8fm will be broadcasting from the venue on the day. It’s going to be an AWESOME day!!! – Leon Economides
